I have always known that Israel had an inordinate amount of influence over the American congress and the American media. I did not know that it was so pervasive that America is taking repeated actions in the UN to support Israel's weasel worded, anti-peace activities aimed at supporting settlement expansion while denying a Palestinian state. Obama was supposed to be an improvement in peacemaking. Instead, he has proven to be the worst of a bad lot.
